WE ARE GUIDED BY EXPERIENCE

The attorneys of Lewis & Llewellyn have over 50 years of complex civil litigation experience, ranging from “bet the company” litigation to discrete issues and disputes. All of our attorneys formerly practiced at some of the world’s most respected law firms including Latham & Watkins LLP, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, and Winston & Strawn LLP.

WE ARE BATTLE-TESTED AND TRIAL-READY

Unlike many of our opponents, we have tried dozens of cases and arbitrations. We bring that experience to bear at every stage of a case. Our adversaries know that we are ready and able to try cases; whether representing a plaintiff or a defendant, our willingness to proceed to verdict gives our clients strategic advantages from the inception of a case to its resolution.

Lewis & Llewellyn’s lawyers are aggressive, battle-tested, and trial-ready, offering their extensive experience to a client at every stage in the litigation process.

And while we are always ready to try a case, we also realize that trial is sometimes not the best option for our clients. Our effectiveness in alternative dispute resolution (including arbitration, mediation, and other settlement procedures) is reflected in the results we have achieved for our clients.

WE OFFER INNOVATIVE FEE ARRANGEMENTS

Most law firms offer a “one-size-fits-all” approach to both case strategy and fee arrangements. While a traditional billable hour model is appropriate for some cases, it may not be the best option for all cases. That is why Lewis & Llewellyn is willing to consider a variety of alternative fee arrangements on a case-by-case basis. These arrangements include hybrid hourly, contingency fee, fixed fee, subscription fee, success-based bonuses, and early resolution bonuses.

Our goal is always to win at a reasonable cost, and we stay focused on that goal throughout every stage of the case.

WE STAFF TO WIN; NOT TO BILL HOURS

We know that disputes typically resolve in one of three ways: the case goes to trial (or arbitration), one side wins via dispositive motion, or the parties settle. From the beginning of any dispute, we focus with laser-like precision on a path to victory in all three scenarios. Every strategy decision is designed to set up a win at trial, a victorious dispositive motion, or to promote a favorable settlement. And while most cases settle, our experience tells us that clients who are prepared to go to trial almost uniformly achieve better results. Our goal is always to win at a reasonable cost, and we stay focused on that goal throughout every stage of the case.

WE LITIGATE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS

Because of our experience and unique approach to litigation, some of the world’s leading companies have retained Lewis & Llewellyn to handle significant litigation matters. Lewis & Llewellyn has represented an array of high-profile companies, including Oracle, Tesla, Clorox, Facebook and Plantronics. Lewis & Llewellyn also represents other well-known companies, including several members of the Fortune 100, in confidential matters. But whether representing a Fortune 100 company or an individual, we treat every case with the same level of attention and dedication.

Lewis & Llewellyn has represented an array of high-profile companies, including Oracle, Tesla, Clorox, Facebook and Plantronics.
